white wine-poached pears

Imagine pears bobbing around in a honey-sweetened white wine syrup flavored with ginger, vanilla, cinnamon and star anise. White Wine-Poached Pears are so fragrant! They make an elegant stand-alone dessert, but poached pears are also great alongside ice cream or a piece of “simple” cake. I have a jar of leftover syrup in the fridge…I might use it to make a champagne cocktail before the winter’s through.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see all of our cakes this week.

  1. I like your idea of making a champaign cocktail with the leftover pear syrup. Excellent!

  2. Your finished products always look so elegant…worthy of a restaurant!! For some reason, we had never had these?! They were a hit!

  3. That syrup was so good…ice cream:)
